Destination: Mauritania


I spent a little time in Morocco in September, mainly in Casablanca and Fes. As usual I brought a heap of cassettes back to England, including two intriguing, unmarked home recorded cassettes of Mauritanian music. The cassettes were old and dirty nth generation copies, probably of wedding recordings of famous Mauritanian musicians such as Dimi Mint Abba, Nema Mint Chouiekh and Mohammed Ould Seymali.

The good people at The Attic have taken the best bits of the two tapes and condensed them to a more easily digestible 90 minute podcast which you can (and should, this music is incredibly beautiful) listen to here:
